The Michigan Commission on Services to the Aging is seeking input from the public at its next listening session in St. Joseph County on Friday, June 21, 2024. The Commission is a 15-member, governor-appointed body that advises the Governor, Legislature and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on matters relating to policies and programs for older adults in Michigan. Each year the Commission on Services to the Aging hosts listening sessions in different areas of the state to give older adults the opportunity to share feedback about issues impacting their lives.

The public hearing is at 1:00 p.m. at the Rivers Enrichment Center, 1200 W. Broadway Street, Three Rivers. Anyone wishing to address the commission is asked to register upon arrival. Speakers should limit comments to three to five minutes.

The Commission values the input received by Michiganders at the listening sessions so far and looks forward to suggestions from residents in the St. Joseph County area. It will use the feedback to guide important advocacy efforts on behalf of the state’s aging adults and to inform Michigan’s State Plan on Aging. Anyone needing accommodations to attend may contact Kelly Cooper at %17-214-1618.
